Orange County’s COVID-19 hospitalizations decline again

“The numbers are looking good,” Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service.  “The hospitalizations are down, the percent positive is down and there’s nothing to complain about. … There’s plenty of bad news nationally about COVID, and I hope that will spur people to get vaccinated — everywhere, including Orange County,” Noymer said.
